    Is it leaking anywhere.

    Maybe its not leaking when the car is sitting. But it may leak when its running and a load is on the motor.

    Check for leaks

    Does the lower intake have the baffle plate under the hole for the PCV valve and screen? If not you will use a quart of oil every 2 or 3 days.
